Los Angeles - Pamela Anderson has filed a restraining order against Rick Salomon.
The former Baywatch actress has been granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged husband - who she filed for divorce from last month - after claiming his "erratic" behaviour has left her concerned about her safety.
The 47-year-old star alleged in court documents that were filed on Friday that Salomon's pattern of abuse has become so severe that she's "scared of what he is capable of doing to me".
Pamela claims that since she filed for divorce from the poker player his behaviour has "become erratic, out of control and has caused me to fear for my safety".
She also referred to a specific case of abuse, which she claims took place in January, revealing he allegedly tried to put a pillow over her face while they were having sex in an attempt to smother her.
She added that when her husband is "upset", he calls her "cruel names'' such as "slut", "ugly old bat" and "crack whore".
Anderson also claims that in the weeks leading up to their divorce, Salomon would send her nude images of herself that he'd taken without her consent "demonstrating that he has the power to send it to anyone if I did not do what he wants".
The blonde beauty first tied the knot with Rick in 2007 but had the marriage annulled two months later.
The pair then rekindled their relationship and remarried in 2014, with Pamela filing for divorce six months later before asking the judge to dismiss her petition.
The temporary restraining order will hold until a court hearing scheduled for 3 April, People magazine reports.
